Student Services Manager

I am a Washingtonian born and raised. I grew up on Vashon Island and attended college at Western Washington University, where I earned my degree in Business Administration and Marketing in 2004. Before beginning my MEDEX career in 2005, I worked as an International Peer Advisor and event planner while at Western, and also for the Seattle Mariners as the supervisor of the team store at Safeco Field. My life outside of MEDEX pretty much consists of the Seattle sports scene (As I am an avid Seahawks and Mariners fan). I also enjoy playing other sports like golf and bowling.

“Alaska is a big state and access can be difficult especially with the conditions of weather or with the expensive of travel. So having a DHAT placed in a village setting is both rewarding and beneficial for the people. I see the dental therapists as a new mainstream for dental prevention, working together as a team with all occupations of the dental field. We’re a new kind of provider, a profession that has so much promise to the future of oral health. I see all the smiles and gratitude the patients have for the services we provide and I’m proud to be here helping. It warms my heart and gives me the sense that I’m doing something right.”
